-I learned I am not ready for 'level 2' of jillian michaels.....owwwww. I don't even know how much of a workout I got since I had to stop and rest (the other option was die) and I fell behind since she has such wacko names for moves so she would be like 'alright next up: jazz hands karate kick high punches' and as I said 'what????' and she had already started!

-I mailed most of the save-the-dates today and handed out my co-workers' in person at work. I went to tell my boss something at one point and I caught him looking at the save-the-date and smiling. That made me very happy!

So here are some pictures of the save the dates (sorry I am such a bad photographer!):

This is just a dummy one I made to photograph. I did tons of different speech 'bubbles' but I Think the thought clouds were my favorite. Then those are the cards and the sticker with our initials and the date.

I bought that striped paper to line the office max envelopes. I think it jazzed them up! I also wanted to do something with the back of the envelope. I originally was thinking a heart stamp then a sticker but ultimately decided to mirror the heart and cursive writing from the mailing stamps I used.

This is just a close up of the sealed envelope.

And here my friends is the next adventure: bibs!

God, I love baker's twine.


  1. I concur about the bakers twine. You're save the dates are adorable. And I think the bibs are a GREAT idea!! You're so artsy. :)
